Yeah well food is always a part of everything.
When I grew up we had gym at school two or three dance classes after school ice skating lessons and all sorts of sports at our finger tips. We weren’t glued to computers because they didn’t exist so being active was all we knew.
The guys in my band are great-we watch movies we eat pizza take walks read books. Everybody has a really great sense of humor. And my boyfriend comes and visits me on the road.
Some people train for certain sports and I want to train to be able to hold a super heavy electric guitar and carry luggage around myself because I always have to have 7,000 pairs of shoes. Who cares about sports?
My overnight success was really 15 years in the making. I’d been writing songs since I was 6 and playing in bands and performing since I was 14.
I think we were raised in a nice Texas Jewish family where education was the most important thing and close behind that was the arts. It was emphasized and expected that we’d play piano.
I think a good mom is an awake mom. At least for me I’ve always been a kinder better person awake than sleep-deprived!
I didn’t realize what an impact having a No. 1 single would have. It connects me with people of different ages and I get to travel all over the world.
I always wanted to make a children’s album because you have the freedom to explore so many wonderful topics and sounds.
Although my dad was a doctor we weren’t necessarily a super-artsy family. We were just a classic traditional family who got to take a lot of piano lessons and became a bunch of musicians.
